- Obamacare sucks in every possible way.
- The ruling had a somewhat subtle, but firm slap in the face of Congress, declaring that their use of the Commerce Clause was incorrect and that the authority for the act rested under the Taxation Powers of Congress.
- In joining with the left, John Roberts may have just handed the November election to the GOP. Now the GOP has more to run on that “we’re not Obama”. They’ve got the economy and they’ve got Obamacare. It won’t be hard for them to point out that the costs of Obamacare will be borne by the taxpayers in the middle of a bad economy – a formula that got them a tremendous victory in the House last November. The more I think about it, this whole scenario has a very Karl-Rovesque feel to it, with someone playing a much smarter game than anyone’s realizing.
- The ruling makes Democrats happy today. I liken it to a team who just got a touchdown in a football game. They did, however, miss the extra point and now the other team (the GOP) has excellent field position. The only question is: can our Bringham-Young-graduate QB take it to the paint?

This is a great visual analogy. It’s less than two minutes and well worth a watch. It’s funny, creative and very informative.

The Complete List of Obama Statement Expiration Dates provided by Jim Geraghty at NRO.
Here are some highlights:
STATEMENT: “These negotiations will be on C-SPAN, and so the public will be part of the conversation and will see the decisions that are being made.” January 20, 2008, and seven other times.
EXPIRATION DATE: Throughout the summer, fall, and winter of 2009 and 2010; when John McCain asked about it during the health care summit February 26, Obama dismissed the issue by declaring, “the campaign is over, John.”
STATEMENT: “No family making less than $250,000 will see any form of tax increase.” (multiple times on the campaign trail)
EXPIRATION DATE: Broken multiple times, including the raised taxes on tobacco, a new tax on indoor tanning salons, but most prominently on February 11, 2010: “President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.”
It is rather lenghty, but well worth a read. Here is to “The One” who says one thing and does another. Very typical of Washington and all that dwell there, but I think Obama and his people take it to another level.

I wondered why these companies had not spoken out sooner, when it could have done some good. I suppose this is the answer: they know how vindictive the Democrats are. The Democrats’ reaction would have been even more hostile (and more dangerous to the companies’ well-being) if they had dared to blow the whistle on Obamacare before Congress voted.

“SEC. 4191. MEDICAL DEVICES.

That’s right, ladies! Lucky you! You get to pay 2.3% more for your lady stuff. But fear not! In our wonderful politically-correct world, fellas will have to pay more for their fella stuff… I guess that means “condoms”, but I dunno.
Compression stockings for diabetics? 2.3%.
Pill sorters? 2.3%.
ACE Bandages? 2.3%
Breast pumps for pumping milk for babies? 2.3%
Dentures, both partial and full 2.3%
Fetal cell-screening kit 2.3%
Female condoms, single use 2.3% (cuz girls can buy condoms, too!)
Treponemal syphilis test 2.3%
HIV saliva test kit 2.3%
Stair-climbing wheelchair 2.3%
Inflatable penis prosthetics 2.3% (do people actually buy these?)
Hip, knee, ankle, breast prosthetics 2.3%
Dialysis catheters 2.3%
Sickle-cell anemia tests 2.3%
How’s that for a “tax on the rich”? I sure am glad they covered pre-existing conditions for kids to make up for this stupidity…
Wait a minute… seriously? They forgot it? Well, surely there aren’t other taxes buried in there…
Wait a minute… there are? Well… I guess I’d oppose it, but apparently, people who oppose government healthcare are terrorists.

“Hours after President Barack Obama signed historic health care legislation, a potential problem emerged. Administration officials are now scrambling to fix a gap in highly touted benefits for children.”

Think about that for just one moment. On second though, don’t. Your brain may try to eat its way out of your head.

Have you heard the news? The Great Recession’s over! We’re in full-on RECOVERY MODE! Yay!
Well, except for the crippling 19.9% underemployment rate, where nearly 1 in 5 Americans is “working less than they want to” – or in other words, out of work. Again, since the Democrats took control of Congress (you know – the people that can actually spend Federal money), our unemployment rate has gone from 4.6% to hovering in the 10% range. Some recovery.
You’re doin’ a heck of a job, Barry.

With all the double speak, and Washington rhetoric, I thought I would put my interpreting skills to use to decipher some of the latest and greatest quotes coming form our latest and greatest leader’s. Yes I am fluent in liberal, so these are extremely accurate translations:
Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md:
”Economy, economy, economy”
Translation: Raising taxes on citizens and businesses, more government control/take over of private companies, re-distribution of wealth and more government programs.
Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa.
“We need a jobs bill. We need short-term, focused strategies to create jobs, real fast,” “If the dominant message isn’t about jobs and spending, we’ll be making a difficult challenge exponentially more difficult.”
Translation: We need to spend more money. We need another stimulus package, with some benefits starting a year or two after we implement the stimulus. We can use fabricated numbers again and lie about the jobs created, and change our original wording from “jobs created” to “jobs saved”. Just like we did here.
“The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry, and they’re frustrated. Not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years,” Obama told ABC in an interview.
Translation: The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry, and they’re frustrated. I should also add that in addition to the anger and frustration, there were plenty of lies I told: I promised we would be a transparent administration, I would be bipartisan in my efforts, I would leave old Washington politics behind, I will be in charge of an administration that will promote unity. I must admit that my time as president brought the country even further apart. This is why I must continue to blame the Bush administration for my failures and broken promises, I am like every other politician, I can not, and will not take responsibility for my failures. No, I will abdicate it, and blame Bush. That’s what we do. Also, let’s be completely honest. If American Idol wasn’t on now, and Coakley was just a little bit more of an exciting candidate, a lot of the people watching American Idol would have come out to vote for her. They didn’t feel like they were going to be “a part of something big!” There was no need for the hippies to be involved in the Massachusetts election.
Translation: We can’t say “ObamaCare is dead, we need to present a front, even if there are plenty of Senator’s and those in the Congress that are running as far as they can from Health Care Reform now. It doesn’t matter at all that Pelosi says she doesn’t have the votes for it. Never mind that the majority of the US citizens are against the bill as well, we have never been one to listen to the people, we have an agenda to pass, and that is what is important!
In a year of hopping from crisis to crisis, he told ABC News, “we lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values.”
Translation: In a year of hopping from crisis to crisis, we have talked directly to the American people, in fact we have talked to them more times on national TV than any other President, all with in my first year. I could really care less about any of the core values of Americans. Yes, I know that the majority of them dislike Democrats ideas for Health Care Reform, but like my main man AxelRod said in the paragraph above ”we have an agenda to pass.”
Translation: Since we have no chance of passing health care in a legitimate and bipartisan fashion, we will do it ”the other way”. RAM IT DOWN YOUR THROATS AMERICA. We’ve got three choices. 1) We can pass the bill quick before Brown is seated, 2) We can approve the senate version of the bill, of course the House would have to vote on this, and that is unlikely to pass, 3) reconciliation, the nuclear option, we would only need 50 votes for this option.
Sorry Al, You are just blowing smoke. Very unlikely any of those will be implimented. Try it. I hope you are prepared for the anger of the American people. Which is already burning bright, this will add more fuel for the fire.
I hope the translations have been informative and entertaining for you. Good night.
